The report that Hunter Biden is under criminal investigation by the FBI for his international business dealings and possible tax fraud is a very big story. The bigger story is that the media didn’t cover it before the election.
Our media is irreparably broken and there doesn’t seem to be any hope for it. The problem is — they don’t think it’s broken at all. Journos think that pushing their worldview and preferred political candidates and hiding anything damning to either of those is the purpose of journalism. They don’t even know it’s about reporting facts because “facts” have become synonymous with opinions, ie. “your truth” and “my truth.” Yeah, that’s not how things actually work in the real world.
Let’s take a quick jaunt into the Hunter Biden stuff and then get into the real story — our disgustingly biased media.
President-elect Joe Biden’s son revealed Wednesday that he’s under federal investigation for possible tax fraud, with a report saying the Justice Department is examining his overseas business dealings.
The probe also reportedly involves a laptop that belonged to Hunter Biden, the existence of which was first reported by The Post, and which contains communciations and documents detailing some of his business dealings in China and Ukraine.
Hunter Biden, 50, disclosed the probe in a statement released by his father’s presidential transition office…
…The probe began in 2018, sources told Fox News and CNN.
Investigators are looking into whether Hunter and his business associates violated various tax and money laundering laws, CNN said.
The probe is focused on Hunter’s business dealings in China and other countries and invovles transactions with people who posed counterintelligence concerns, CNN said.

So, this has been going on for two years and not a damned word was written about it in the mainstream media.
When it was finally reported by the intrepid team over at the New York Post, they were censored on Twitter and Facebook, snubbed by their media peers, and accused of spreading “Russian disinformation.”
The thing is, this wasn’t a surprise for those of us in right-wing news. We’ve been reporting on Hunter’s questionable business dealings for literally years.

And when the laptop story dropped in October, it confirmed what we’d suspected for a long time.
That’s because we remember the pre-Obama era when occasionally a member of the Press remembered that they weren’t supposed to be partisan hacks.

#HunterBiden My reporting a week before Presidential election, “The FBI interview was voluntary + the source said, the discussion included his business dealings with the Bidens on Chinese firm CEFC as well as Bobulinski’s “exposure to other Biden family business deals” globally.” https://t.co/azzd65i1cK

President Trump made sure to mention the Hunter laptop story in the final Presidential Debate. It’s difficult to believe, but… this was the first time that many Americans had heard of the Hunter Biden laptop story because it was suppressed by both the Media (D) and Big Tech.
At the time, Joe Biden said that it was “Russian disinformation.”

Don’t forget that the Deep State put its thumb on the scale, too.

Here are a few details:
According to the report, Hunter Biden’s relationship with Ye Jianming and Gongwen Dong began in 2015, while Biden’s father was vice president under former President Barack Obama.
“Ye’s connections to the Communist government are extensive and … Ye was also financially connected to Vice President Biden’s brother, James Biden,” the report says. “Thus, there exists a vast web of corporate connections and financial transactions between and among the Biden family and Chinese nationals.”
On Sept. 8, 2017, the report says, Ye’s company announced a $9.1 billion deal to acquire a stake in Rosneft, a Russian state-owned energy company.
On that same date, the report adds, Hunter Biden allegedly opened up a line of credit with Gongwen Dong, using the business name Hudson West III — with Hunter Biden, James Biden and James Biden’s wife, Sara Biden, all listed as “authorized users of credit cards associated with the account.”
Also on that same date, the report says, the Biden family members used those credit cards to purchase more than $100,000 in airline tickets, technology products, hotel rooms and restaurant meals – transactions that were flagged for “potential financial criminal activity.”
The report adds that the credit cards were backed by $99,000 being transferred from a China-linked Hudson West III account to a separate account, until the credit card accounts were closed.

And that’s just the beginning. It seems that James Biden, Joe’s brother, is also under investigation.

They’ve got the talking points, too. They’re all saying, “Hunter Biden says he’s being investigated.”

NY Post ran a true story and now confirmed story. Former Democrat ops who now work for Twitter blocked it. Journalists encouraged the censorship and labeled the story Russian hacked misinformation.

Hunter Biden has been under investigation since 2018. We only found out about this now. The media didn’t dig into allegations about Hunter during the entirety of the 2020 election cycle. Many declared that stories from the @NYPost were Russian disinformation.
— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 10, 2020
So, here’s the thing about members of the media now screaming about the undermining of democracy. F*** right off. Your job was to bring relevant information to the American public. You ignored it, because you are largely Democratic mouthpieces.
— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 10, 2020
There are many kinds of threat to democracy. As a famous former newspaper once said, “Democracy dies in darkness.” You guys are, all too often, the people turning out the lights.
— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 10, 2020
If @DonaldJTrumpJr @IvankaTrump or @EricTrump were under investigation since 2018 in a wide ranging criminal investigation and media refused to report it until after the election, Democrats would lose their minds. This was collusion between media, Dems & Big Tech to save Biden.

Screenwriter Tom Vaughen asked a very good question:
I honestly don’t mean this as snark. But remember when they refused to investigate the Hunter Biden story? They blocked it, said it was lies and Russian disinformation? And now you’re finding out it was always true?
What other stories do you think they’re doing that to you with?

The answer is… all of them.
But there is a solution…
